Belly Live At RoyaleIt’s been almost 30 years since Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses, The Breeders) formed Belly. In 1993 their debut Star shot them straight into stardom, and the single, “Feed the Tree” became a global hit. 25 years later and the alt-rockers are back with Dove, a balanced, collaborative work that’s brought the band closer—with each other and their audience—as witnessed at their show last night at the Royale. We couldn't be more thrilled that they're back at it.

Dermot Kennedy — In StudioA native of County Dublin, singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy began writing songs in his teens. The current NPR Slingshot artist stopped by WGBH’s Fraser performance studio on a blazing hot August afternoon to perform a powerfully intimate set featuring two songs on guitar and two on piano. NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson recently wrote that Kennedy has “a voice built to fill stadiums”. The moment Dermot began to sing we were left with the same jaw-dropping feeling. It's clear Dermot is well on his way to doing some pretty special things in music.
